Chances are if you swung by the NBA office at night you’d hear an ongoing debate about the toughest venue for opposing teams to play in. It’s been argued in just about every direction for countless seasons now, but we may finally have a definitive answer. Chalk one up for Utah. After surging past the division-rival Mavericks on Monday, the Jazz notched their 16th straight home triumph, their longest streak since 1995-96. It also gave Utah the advantage over the Mavericks — they were previously tied — for best home record in the league this season as they improved to an astounding 26-3. The Salt Lake City crowd stayed behind the Jazz, even after Dallas stormed back from a 21-point deficit. Utah used it to its advantage, following up with a 16-0 late fourth-quarter run to assure a victory. “It was a playoff atmosphere,” said forward Carlos Boozer, who poured in a game-best 28 points.
